CANADA - Montreal

We are going to Montreal for a long weekend towards the end of July. I would appreciate your recommendations for great places to eat while we're there.

Thanks,

I have a friend who lived there. I'll ask her what she recommends. For a start I can tell you to hit Old Montreal. You will find some really wonderful stuff there.

My dad used to rave about a restaurant he went to when he was a young navy boy. I wonder if it is still there? I'll post here in a day or so with my friends recommendations.

I've spent a good amount of time in Montreal. Honestly, I can't remember the name of any one restaurant I've been to though. I know Rue St. Denis had a great Spanish restaurant up the hill from McGill University on the right hand side (as you look up the hill). And there was a particularly good place not too terribly far from the Botanical Gardens and Montreal Olympic Stadium. Again, I'm sorry I can't remember the name.

Oh yeah, and Chinatown had some delicious eats and the shopping's a hoot too!

Try any mom and pop's. Odds are, if it's out of the way, you won't be dissatisified!

Bon voyage et ciao,

There are NO shortages of fantastic places to eat....everone hit the nail on the head with going to Old Town. Just look around, and often the most unassuming places are the most fantastic.

One place that I remember, but not the name, was a very unassuming 'quaint' bistro type place. The menu was several chalkboards hung through the various rooms.

I had the most delectable confit du canard I can ever recall eating. And, trust me, duck is something I love. This topped anything! Of course, it could have been the company ~ amongst friends, the wine ~ aplenty, or just a combination of all the planets in line.

So, you really can't go wrong. Unless you stop off at Le Mickey D's, but I would hope you've better things on your 'to do' list.

Bon chance!
Ciao,

I should mention we were there once before about 4-5 years ago. We visited Old Montreal and toured St. Catherine Street.

Not all our restaurant choices were the best. We did go to Gibby's for a very good dinner and to a breakfast spot called Eggspectations that offered a decent breakfast.

Well probably visit the casino this time.

Thanks, Charlotte. That looks like a spot I'll really enjoy.
